Susannah Maze

    I studied History at the University of Birmingham and loved my course!
    After University, I went straight into a job in Advertising. I had thought
    about teaching and knew it would be something I’d enjoy, I just wasn’t sure
    whether I was ready yet to have that career and wanted to explore other
    ‘exciting’ options. I worked in several advertising agencies in Account
    Management, working for some of the UK’s top companies and some high
    calibre brands such as Mars, Coca-Cola and BT. However, I did not feel
    extremely fulfilled or excited by my job. I began helping at a local charity,
    tutoring underprivileged students struggling with their GCSE’s. I fell in love
    with teaching and explored routes into the career at a later stage. I trained
    at one of London’s top State Schools, Mossbourne Community Academy
    and am now in my NQT year at UCS Hampstead – absolutely loving my
    job and it was the best decision I’ve ever made!
